For fans of:Explosions In The Sky, Mogwai, Caspian, This Will Destroy You, Russian Circles

Compass & Knife is a four-piece instrumental band from the Pacific Northwest that draws influences from ambient, shoegaze, and post-rock sounds.

After years of playing in different bands, four friends from Tacoma, WA came together to create a sound that was both introspective yet existential. Happy yet sad. Quiet yet heavy. Inspired by a broad range of musical genres from ambient instrumental to indie rock, Compass & Knife set out to write and perform music that would provoke a wide spectrum of human emotions.
